SO 463 Capstone Internship Experience

The Capstone Internship Experience is designed to give seniors who are majoring in Sociology, Anthropology, or Criminal Justice experience in their chosen career field and to connect that experience to research literature. The course requires fieldwork experience in a social welfare, criminal justice, or similar agency for 10 hours each week. Through various writing assignments, students will learn to link academic knowledge to their internships, understand the relationship between theory and applied practice, and foster personal and professional growth. For the capstone project, students design a program for their internship site and write a grant proposal that includes a literature review of research conducted about the social problem that their grant seeks to improve. Open to senior sociology, criminal justice, and anthropology majors.

Prerequisite: This course is only open to seniors in the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice.  Students must have a major GPA of at least a 2.0 in order to enroll and must have passed SO 330  or CJ 330 , or an approved alternate course.
